We were looking for a fish fry for me and shrimp for my wife. The whole catfish, I ordered, was very good. The shrimp had a thicker batter than my wife would have like. We would return for the catfish.

We travel the world and try local joints often. This is nothing fancy, but great quality food, friendly service, and reasonably priced for Midwest cooking. Not for you if looking for fancy or variety, just plain good American food. Nice salad bar, great drink prices,...More

The restaraunt seemed very dated. The food was adequate but was overly priced. The reviews were misleading and I wished we had chosen differently. Still looking for a place worth stopping for when we are in this area.
